Oculus Quest

The company has announced hand tracking on Oculus Quest, enabling natural interaction in VR while using your own hands-on an all-in-one device — no extra hardware required.

Hand tracking on Quest will be released as an experimental feature for Quest owners and a developer SDK in early 2020.

Oculus Link

Oculus Link is a new way for people who own Quest and a gaming PC to access content from the Rift Platform. The software will be released in beta this November, and it will work with most high-quality USB-C cables.

Later this year, Facebook will also release a premium cable with maximum throughput to run Rift content and a longer cord so you can move easily in VR.
